Third time is not the charm on The Lumineers’ ‘III’

(17 hours ago)

The Lumineers have always had a knack for narrative songwriting. Many stunning songs from their self-titled first album, which projected them into the center of the indie music scene in 2012 with the hit single “Ho Hey,” are stories at their core. This theme continued with their second album in 2016, which was partly inspired by an eccentric taxi driver, the titular “Cleopatra,” whose life story had a profound effect on the band’s lead singer Wesley Schultz.

Hello it's Better Laettner Than Never where I say a few things that I think we should discuss. To start, I believe in the Second Amendment right to bear arms, but I don't believe that it is an unlimited right. Just as we have a right to free speech, yet there are still limitations on certain forms of speech, there should be more restrictions on gun ownership, preferably a full ban on assault-style weapons.

Bring back the history of economic thought
